Telephone scam artists claim to be Cottonwood Heights Police Officers
The Cottonwood Heights Police Department has received several inquiries from concerned citizens who have received calls from a male claiming to be a Cottonwood Heights Police Officer. The caller demands payment via a cash app in order to keep the victim from being arrested. This is a scam!
The Cottonwood Heights Police Department would never call and request payment in any form. If you receive a call from anyone claiming to be a Cottonwood Heights employee, and they are soliciting payment, do not pay. We recommend that you immediately hang up and call the non-emergency dispatch number to report it: 801-743-7000.
